General Requirements

Product Choice

The aim is to develop a Premium DIY FDM 3d printer for the DIY 3d printer community

  • Safety features must be very high
  • Fully automated bed leveling
  • Engineered advanced Z lift with kinematic coupling
  • Integrated dry-box filament container
  • We want to be able to print high temp materials
  • The project will be open source
  • Size should be scalable < 500
  • Standard alu profiles. 2040 and 2020
  • Belted Z drive
  • Advanced Firmware options
  • Enclosed chamber with engineered insulation for <80C Chamber temp

Function Choices

The machine should have all the functions needed for a trouble-free user experience. The goal is to implement all basic functions plus any feature that is making an advanced high temp premium 3d printer
